Photos of the Week #50
WEEK 50 OF 52
How is your Christmas shopping going? There’s still some time left, but I can’t help but feel some mild panic! Thankfully I’ve got a bit more annual leave left, and only a few more gifts to buy, so it should all be ok (she says, trying to stay calm…).
Here’s what I got up to last week.
^^I tried Fry’s new battered ‘prawns’, and cooked us a homemade Chinese takeaway, including peanut oil noodles, tofu in hoisin sauce, thai crackers and these prawns. They tasted like chicken nuggets, though!^^
^^Christmas dinner with friends. Every year we organise a Christmas dinner to exchange gifts and wish each other a merry Christmas. This year we went to Food for Friends, and it was really good. Any meal that starts with Prosecco and ends with port is going to be good though, right?! I was so sad that Trout couldn’t make it, but we all faced time him before the meal and passed him around the table, which was fun.^^
^^The last few weeks have been hard, but I decided it was time to make an effort and dress up for the evening. I had a voucher for a free style at my local salon, so I asked her to pop in a victory roll, and I love it so. Plus the curls held all night!^^
^^A few of the candles from my Advent Calendar. I bought a plate to keep them on from a charity shop, and although you can’t really tell, it’s so beautiful. Cream with a gold trim, perfect for my candles.^^
^^Our Christmas tree <3 Trout came home on Sunday night and we pretty much went straight out and bought a tree. We spent the afternoon drinking mulled cider (me) and red wine (him), decorating the Christmas tree, eating twiglets and watching the worst of the Christmas movie channel. It was kind of perfect.^^
